Type of coffee I prefer is starbucks coffee(whole bean). Although, 7-11 coffee is also just as good. I buy the beans and make the coffee. It is just easier to buy starbucks b/c they have their beans at the grocery store and I hate having to go to more than one store nowadays since my 21 month old doenst have the patience for shopping.  And I end up looking like an ad for "calgon take me away" with the screaming child and the crazed look of madness.  Grin

If I must venture out to get coffee, starbucks opened a drive thru and I get a nonfat toffeenut latte.  However, I just recently discovered that Nordstrom's lattes are also pretty good and a bit less expensive than starbucks (go figure).  It is a bit more refined. Haven't tried their beans yet.  Moderator - a coffee section for madina???  Huh?

Chapli Kabab recipe - another note to moderator - might wanna add a recipe section for us wifeys or those who enjoy cooking -

1.5 lbs of ground beef (don't use extra lean ground beef - needs some meat needs fat for this recipe)
2-3 Tbsp fresh coriander
1/2 tomato chopped
1/2 onion chopped fine
green chillies (optional)
Chappli Kabab spice packet - like shaan (but don't use the whole packet, only add about 2-3 tablespoons of spice mix)

In lieu of Spice Packet:
2 whole red chillies ground
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
3 cloves of garlic crushed/chopped fine
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp black pepper
1 clove of cardamom crushed and grated fine
1/4 tsp of pomegranate seeds crushed fine
1/4 tsp of ground cloves
kosher salt to taste (1.5 tsp)

Mix ground beef with spices, onions etc.  Let sit for at least one hour. 
Form patties and make the patties very thin.  Fry on a good nonstick pan with little to no oil. 
Don't move patties around too much or push patties down with spatula because all the juices will leak out.
Each side of the kabab should have a nice brownish crust. 
Place kababs on paper towels to soak up excess grease.
Serve hot with mint chutney and roti.  My hubby likes his with rice. 

These usually don't taste good as leftovers so don't make more than you need.  IF you end up having leftovers, don't reheat in the microwave! Either reheat on the pan or warm in an oven at 200F.
Enjoy! bebzi

'in lieu of spice packet'

Does that mean 'instead of spice packet?

or addition to the spice packet?
